Sean Keenan as ‘Lewis’
This production of Così marks Sean’s professional theatre debut, but his long career on screen will mean he’s a familiar face to many of our audience members. Starting at the age of 14, Sean appeared in Lockie Leonard and has gone on to appear in a whole host of Aussie classics like Cloudstreet and Puberty Blues. He’s also appeared in a number of films and will, next year, appear in a cinematic adaptation of Peter Carey’s iconic novel The True History of the Kelly Gang.
In this production Sean plays Lewis, a character whose experiences very closely resemble those of Louis Nowra himself. Unlike the majority of the other characters, Lewis is not a patient in a mental health facility but, as the show progresses, Lewis comes to see that the line between what society considers mentally ill and mentally healthy is a little more arbitrary than he first thought.
